  • Hello,

    Thanks for getting in touch with us.

    Please note that the instant indexing API should be used on live streaming and job posting websites.

    For all other websites, it only guarantees crawling – not indexing.

    Please note that it is completely normal for a newly published post/page/website to take time before it gets crawled or indexed by Google. It depends on a lot of factors. Your posting frequency + the domain authority are just two of the many factors Google considers when indexing some new URL. Google assigns a crawl budget to your website depending on these factors (especially these two) and that has a direct effect on how soon or how late your content can get indexed.

    You can also check for noindex tag here to rule out that your page isn’t getting indexed due to a mistake in plugin settings:

    If noindex is not present, then it is just a waiting game before Google decides to include the URL in the index. No SEO plugin can force Google to index something they don’t want to.

    With that said, we have found that barring any issues like copied/DMCA/low quality content issues – Google usually indexes posts within a week or two. So, we request you to kindly wait.

    Google even says that on their official website:

    The above screenshot was taken from this page:

    So, you have to be a bit patient and allow it some time. If your website isn’t indexed even after a week, you can place a manual indexing request here:

    Finally, it all boils down to the quality of the content and if your content improves Google’s overall search index.

    Please check this article where one of the Google employees mentioned:

    “If your site relies on manual index submission for normal content, you need to significantly improve your site. Search console does not fix your site, you need to do that yourself.” – JohnMu

    With that said, here’s a good article on how to ensure that your website gets indexed regularly:

    Hope that helps and please do not hesitate to let us know if you need our assistance with anything else.

    It looks like you are serving a cached version of your sitemap to Google and your visitors.

    You must add all the sitemap file locations to the exclusion list in your Cache plugin so that the sitemaps are never cached. These are the files you must add to the exclusion list:

    This is required since Sitemaps are already cached internally by Rank Math and we flush them everytime you post something new and with our cache – you won’t see the issue you are seeing in Google.

    For removing category from the SERPs – you have to disable breadcrumbs in your website.

    Hope that helps and please do not hesitate to let us know if you need our assistance with anything else.

    thank you so much, you people are doing great work

    Yesterday, I migrated from Yoast SEO to RankMath. Earlier my SEO used to index my blog link in a span of 2 hrs, but it’s not happening in RankMath. Does it require any additional plugin apart from Instant Indexing?


    @Nwachukwu Could you please share the URL marked invalid so we can check from our end.

    Did yo import your Yoast settings to Rank math? Are there any errors reported to your GSC? Could you also check your sitemap if your posts are being added to your sitemap.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    The category and any added slug comes from your breadcrumbs. To remove/modify this please head over to Rank math > General settings > Breadcrumbs.
